Pre Charge Representation
It is of vital importance that top quality legal advice is sought whilst under investigation. Challenging searches and arrests, contesting restraint orders and robustly conducting your defence is Raz’s expertise.
The right representation can give you the best chances of favouring an outcome or avoiding being charged at all.
Restraint and Freezing Orders
Proceeds of Crime Act 2000
These orders are imposed even before you are charged with any offence.
The orders will have been obtained ex parte which means without the Defence being present. These are draconian orders that the investigating authorities can impose on your assets, which effectively freezes them and stops you from operating bank accounts and your business. Furthermore the authorities will limit your monthly spend. The day-to-day impact these orders have on individuals and families are devastating.
It is vital that immediate steps are taken on the Order and supporting evidence as often the Judge has been presented with facts that may not be entirely accurate.
Challenging these facts will ensure that the Judge has applied the correct test in law when looking at this order.
